INDIANAPOLIS. U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), was presented the Green Truck Leadership Award yesterday at the Green Truck Summit, ahead of the NTEA’s Work Truck Show.

Stabenow was honored for her work in promoting advanced alternative fuels and technologies for work trucks. She is the sponsor of the Advanced Vehicle Technology Act (AVTA) of 2013, which directs the Secretary of Energy to work toward substantially reducing or eliminating petroleum use by and emissions from passenger and commercial vehicles. She currently chairs the Finance Committee’s Subcommittee on Energy, Natural Resources and Infrastructure and has represented the State of Michigan in the U.S. Senate since being elected in 2000.

Stabenow was introduced by inaugural Green Truck Leadership Award winner U.S. Rep. Gary Peters of Michigan.

“Senator Stabenow is a true leader in the effort to support both alternative fuels and advanced technologies in work trucks,” said Shawn Jacobs, NTEA president and president & CEO of STS Trailer & Truck Equipment of Syracuse, NY.

“The Advanced Vehicle Technology Act not only highlights trucks, it also recognizes the differences between vocational and long-haul trucks,” said NTEA Executive Director Steve Carey. “We appreciate Sen. Stabenow and her efforts to help the work truck industry improve both our environmental impact and our businesses’ bottom lines.”

The Green Truck Summit, a two-day educational conference revealing the latest innovations in green truck alternate fuels and sustainable technologies, is held annually in conjunction with The Work Truck Show. This year's event runs March 4-7 in Indianapolis, IN.
